Residential Key holding

Residential Key Holding

Making sure your home is secure is a growing concern for many homeowners. An alarm is a deterrent, but who is going to respond to an alarm activation? The police are busy, and you may feel ill-equipped to deal with such a situation.

For all monitored alarm systems, we offer a fast and effective service. Upon notification from a monitoring station or the police, we’ll dispatch a VIP Security response vehicle with a uniformed licensed professional to be with you at any time of the day or night. All our officers are DBS checked and fully-insured. Security personnel will mange the alarm activation, deal with any damage and secure your home until your return.

We offer bespoke residential key holding services; to meet your needs, we’ll complete a full survey of your home, offer security advice and discuss your required response should your alarm activate. Our specialist team can also liaise with and provide support services, such as locksmiths, boarding up fitters and additional security.

Included in the service is a full written and electronic report. We’ll keep you informed every step of the way, with support from our 24-hour control room. Our services are bespoke to you, to give you and your family complete peace of mind.
